    I will show it during science when I can. Lots of good physics to be identified.

    I only watch it when my wife is in the room and she turns it on. She loves it. I don't really care for it.

    Winter Olympics are boring. Summer is much better.

    i'll watch them on and off.
    I like the alpine skiing, speed skating and the hockey for the most part.
    My wife will watch a lot more of it, especially the figure skating (i think it would be more interesting if they made figure skating a full-contact sport!..."Hughes comes out of her triple toe-loop, but watch out! Oooh, she just wasn't expecting that body check at that point!").

    I don't really care for the extreme sports stuff either, they just don't seem like they belong to me.

    I did see the LUGE thingy yesterday at some friends house, but our tv is hardly ever on anything other than history channel, cnn, CMT, and nick. I do like to watch the high diving and the gymnastics tho.

    I don't plan to watch. Like many who've responded, I find them boring. But if the wife has them on and I'm in the room, I may last 20 minutes or so before going out to the garage to check mouse traps or whatever.

    I love the snowboard kids. I'm glad they have it as an Olympic event, it is really hard to ride like that, and those kids should be considered high-level athletes.

    I love the Olympics, competition at the utmost.

    I saw some of the snowboard halfpipe yesterday and I will say that it was impressive.

    Not watching as much as past Olympics. Tend to get too involved; backing off this time.

    Wait...how about full contact curling?
    "It looks like Sven is working the broom really well and may get a good stop...except for that check from behind, wow he really got laid out that time!"
    Isn't amazing how much better nearly any sport can be by making it full contact! ROFL! [​IMG]
